Text::MediawikiFormat::Blocks - blocktypes for Text::MediawikiFormat
None. Use Text::MediawikiFormat as the public interface, unless you want to create your own block type.
This module merely creates subclasses of Text::MediawikiFormat::Block, which is the interesting code. A block is a collection of related lines, such as a code block (text to display verbatim in a monospaced font), a header, an unordered list, an ordered list, and a paragraph (text to display in a proportional font).
Every block extends
The following methods exist:
new( %args )
Creates and returns a new block. The valid arguments are:
The text of the line found in the block.
The arguments captured by the block-identifying regular expression.
The level of indentation for the block (usually only useful for list blocks).
The tags in effect for the current type of wiki formatting.
The options in effect for the current type of wiki formatting.
Use the accessors of the same names to retrieve the values of the attributes.
add_text( @lines_of_text )
Adds a list of lines of text to the current text for the block. This is very useful when you encounter a block and want to merge it with the previous block of the same type
add_args( @arguments )
Adds further arguments to the block; useful when merging blocks.
Returns text formatted appropriately for this block. Blocks don't have to have formatters, but they may.
formatter( $line_of_text )
Text::MediawikiFormat::format_line(). You can add your own formatter here; this is worth overriding.
merge( $next_block )
Merges the current block with
$next_block(the next block encountered) if they're of the same type and are at the same level. This adds the text and args of
$next_blockto the current block. It's your responsibility to remove
$next_blockfrom whatever your code iterates over.
Returns true if this block should nest (as in lists and unordered lists) for the active wiki formatting.
nest( $next_block )
$next_blockunder this block if the both nest and if
$next_blockhas a level greater than the current block. This actually adds
$next_blockas a text item within the current block. Beware.
